Incumbent :

Main message to voters:

For the first time the economy is recovering, we can now invest again. This follows the worst economic crisis; we still have work to do. In Dublin West I have continued to campaign for employment, protect green spaces, and to ensure the community is finally provided with the services it needs.

Election history:

2003: Co-opted to Fingal County Council. 2004: Elected to FCC - Castleknock LEA. 2007: Elected to Dáil Éireann - party spokesperson for Enterprise, Trade & Employment. 2011: Re-elected to Dáil Éireann, appointed Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport. July 2014: Appointed Minister for Health.

Priorities:

  1. Continue to campaign for employment, protect green spaces, ensure that the community is provided with the services it needs after years of neglect.
  2. Ensure that work pays, put money back in people’s pockets which will result in more revenue to invest in schools, hospitals, & public transport.
  3. Priority is to keep the recovery going. We are seeing economic progress, but we cannot take for granted.
